Re: Higgins mask on ebay ...


 emoticon
I have a higgins that has been painted a dark colour and I was going to paint it white but after seeing one painted , I think I will try stripping it first . I agree Plante , it looks like a replica , not that Marc didn't do a great job of repairing it etc . It just doesn't look correct . Maybe if it was painted a different colour or had a pattern or team logo etc it would look more correct ? Does that make sense ? Like if the monkey mask were to be repainted white , it would look like this but as it is with blue and the monkey it looks great ! Very nice job Marc .

Re: Higgins mask on ebay ...


Ernie used to have you bring your mask back every now and again so he could check the fit and see how it was holding up. He told me that the area at the tip of the nose was quite exposed and sometimes would get soft and he would have to grind back and add an extra layer. He went on to explain that when he did that or even add an entire layer in the face area that he would have to paint the mask white to blend in the repairs, so what Marc has done is not unheard of on a Higgins mask.
The few chips on my mask add character to it. I would not want them repaired, even if Ernie was alive to do it, but to each his own.

That mask has nice proportions. It is a good looking Higgins. Is it full adult size?

Re: Higgins mask on ebay ...


You guys have no idea how much I laughed reading your comments ... looks like none of you caught on what day this is ... go check your calendar :-) been waiting for this one for quite a while now ...

It's just a replica made from the real mask, a mold-print like I did for the Villemure and Favell masks.

It is a very nice Higgins mask, probably made for a teenager or young adult. It is as intact as it was received.

When Plante said 'the problem is that it looks like a replica now' that took the cake!! Good eye!!
